New York Crusaders



The NY Crusaders Academy focus is on preparing our athlete-members to pursue educational options ranging from trade & technical training to university enrollment via pipelines we establish with various colleges and universities.  A more educated community is more prosperous and less likely to pass down generational wealth.  Partnering with NCAA Division I and II colleges and universities that provide football programs for student-athletes, we have established direct pipelines to the administration and coaching staffs for our membership. Scholarship financing is vigorously sought after to ensure our members are able to enroll on campuses and participate at the inter-collegiate level, while mitigating subsequent financial encumbrances upon their graduations. Student-Athletes are carefully vetted and provided counseling & guidance through the NCAA Clearinghouse process and college registration.
